Back in the early days when I was young. I had relied on glasses since I was 10, Why ? I never ever thought I would be wearing contact lenses. The idea of putting a silicone disc in your eyes sounded dreadful. (What a suprise! Years later…) I have tried a plethora of contact lenses, and I Love them. Today I am sharing some coloured lenses I quite like : Freshlook Colourblends in Sterling Gray :
I can’t really say these are my favourite lenses, I have a few reasons why I don’t like these lenses. But I gotta admit that these look great😀.
Comfort: – Not comfortable. I don’t think these fit my eyes well. Both lens (R+L) keeps on moving every time I look left+right, Also the colored part of the lens is visible when worn😦 . The Lens is thin.
Brand/Variety – Probably the biggest color contact lens brand, since the early 2000s. These are the best selling coloured contact lenses, So In addition, there are many colors to choose from. Great Variety! I’m thinking of hazel next … Also they are easily available worldwide.
Price: – Is quite affordable. Around $16 for a box a pair that will last 1 month. I bought these, as I’ve heard people describe the colour as “icy”, however In contrast, the color intensity was a little bit disappointing, however the shade of gray is nice ( Not the novel/film… :P), looks really good in pictures. I just don’t like these contacts as ALWAYS move in my eyes, and I can’t see well, as I see the grey when I move my eyes. I don’t see myself buying freshlook again😦😦. The complete colourblends collections, they have some very nice colours. Similar product to Acuvue Defines. Freshlook have really taken into account how popular these “natural eye enlarging” are in Asia. They look quite nice, Also Yoona from SNSD Promotes these😀😀. Definitely on my wish list, since I have horrid vision.
FreshKon Colors Fusion – Baby Aqua My very 1st colour contacts, These lenses are definitely my favourite. The colour and pattern is very striking, I really like this shade of blue/green, Its turquoise.
Comfort: Comfortable. This pair of contacts is very comfortable to wear. The lenses fit my eyes well, and I can wear for a long duration.
Brand/Variety: FreshKon isn’t a worldwide brand yet. But the Brand is based in Singapore, But the lenses are available in stores in South East Asia/ Asia, And available online worldwide. Despite only being a relatively small company compared to Freshlook, they have a wide range of Colours/Patterns. Additionally, They produce lenses that strongly appeal to Asians. With lenses that enlarge eyes, definitely a buzz word in Asia.
Price: Quite affordable: Price is varied, but varies around 12-18USD. I got mine in Jakarta, Indonesia for $11 . Sorry for the bad quality photos, I wore these a long long time ago. At the time I only had my iSight. I really loved everything about these lenses. The color looked great in all lighting, These are Tri-Coloured, and easy to insert in eyes. Also these were very comfy. As a heavy lens wearer, I can say these are comfier than my monthly lenses and the freshlooks. The Bad ? Not much, but these lenses can look slightly artificial up close. The printed coloured dots are visibly present in the lens case, however, this shouldn’t put you off these contacts. The contacts look natural from a reasonable face-face distance.
There Sparklers Line from Colours Fusion FreshKon. I really like the limbal ring, that was not present in the lens I got. They a constantly reincarnating their contact lenses. From …
To clear contacts. impressive right ? I guess that this really isn’t a big collection.. But Its something to show .😀.
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – Remember that post I posted the review on the Acuvue Define in Accent. Exiting News from Acuvue, that all New Acuvue Defines are repackaged nicely that gives a premium feel, Whats more exiting is that the lenses are now made with lacreon – A wetting agent that promises comfier wear. These lenses are modelled by Jun Ji Hyun. Who is a Korean Actress, Korean Actors and Actresses are always Picture perfect like usual. When I go to Gangnam I gotta step up my a game in fashion and learning the language lol. Taken from Acuvue KR
The New Lacreon Technology explained. Very impressive right? I The Original acuvue defines were very comfortable, Lets see how these lenses compare to the Original Defines.
Comfort: These are instantaneously more comfortable when worn first, Also in comparison to the originals, these are definitely thinner lenses, and they feel extremely moist when placed on the eye. Furthermore, I managed to get a full 15hour wear of these lenses without any discomfort. I am very impressed indeed. They feel very moist also.
Colour/Design: Remained exactly the same as the Originals. I’m glad they’ve kept the signature design.A simple black ring that looks very natural at the same time. I really hate Black Lenses because many of them make me look like a zombie out of a horror film, and looks scary. These are extremely natural, and People sometimes can’t even tell I’m wearing a black lens!
Definitely more premium look. Monochrome is very appealing.
No lens vs With lens. You can see that the right eye is more defined naturally. Not scary/Fake looking at all.
Variety/Brand : Acuvue Contact Lenses are an FDA approved worldwide company. They are best sellers in all contact lenses. I like Acuvue Contact lenses a lot, as their contacts always feel great in my eyes, Since all of their contacts are FDA approved and is safe. Its good to know, these won’t deprive your eyes from Oxygen/Ruin your eyes. Additionally, The Brand mostly sells clear contacts. I believe they had coloured lenses, which are now discontinued😦
Price: For what you get: High quality softlenses, = High Price. Acuvue contacts are generally expensive on the long run, but you get what you pay for, I guess. These contacts are specifically only sold in Asia, You can buy from aalens.com , They sell all kinds of contacts at great prices also they have good customer service.
Also if you prefer clear contacts. Acuvue has a whole range of clear contacts to choose from.
Thanks for reading!
